Sense the authentic

Sense the authentic

Through the central message “Sense the Authentic”, we are building a campaign that invites visitors to discover everything that composes the unique tourism experience of Crete. It encourages visitors to feel, to experience with all their senses the hospitality, as offered by the locals and the tourism professionals, expressed through the passion and love for their work, but also through their deeply rooted moral obligation to offer the “best” and, most importantly, the “authentic”. With more than 1,000 kilometers of coastline, rich history, aromas and flavors that fascinate, Crete, the birthplace of Europe’s oldest civilization, welcomes its visitors with optimism and continues to offer, especially in this unprecedented time, authentic relations with the visitors, based on mutual responsibility.

Have ever seen sea foam?

Have ever seen sea foam?

If you look at ocean water in a clear glass, you’ll see that it’s not clear but full of tiny particles. Seawater contains dissolved salts, proteins, fats, dead algae, detergents and other pollutants. If you shake this glass of ocean water vigorously, small bubbles will form on the surface of the liquid.

Sea foam forms under similar conditions – but on a much grander scale – when storms roll in and the ocean is agitated by wind and waves. The creation of sea foam can occur often in gargantuan proportions.
